• World issues: On 22nd April – Earth Day – Invest in our Planet – may many more companies and organisations produce innovative solutions to limiting harmful products and in caring for our fragile world
Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Heb.4:16
